All bat no defense = just THE GREATEST SHORTSTOP OF THE LAST 15 YEARS (well, besides A-Rod if you wanna put him there).Jeter is similar, he's all bat and no defense,
That he was/is a poor fielding SS? Who's denying that part?when a guy is worse at short than Jeter, and the general consensus is that he's a good SS, when the numbers clearly state otherwise, that's where I see the problem.
He could have held more value if he could have played better defense, he can and did still hold value while playing poor D.People loved Young for the position he played, and you yourself pointed out his supposed value. He holds value IF he can play defense too.
Adam Dunn belongs nowhere near this conversation. You're talking about complete opposite ends of the defensive spectrum there.Otherwise, he's just another Adam Dunn. The value diminishes considerably when the guy sucks at half the game.
